Stewart’s young Wisconsin senator exposing corruption and upholding true American values in a Senate House riddled with graft is quintessential Capra – popular wish-fulfilment served up with such fast-talking comic panache that you don’t have time to question its cornball idealism.
Scriptwriter Sidney Buchman’s crackling dialogue is also lent sharp-tongued conviction by Rains, as the slimy senior senator, Jean Arthur as the hard-boiled dame finally won over by Stewart’s honesty, and Harry Carey as the Vice President.
